For the past year I have had a VERY strong affinity towards my Instant Pot. However, now that I am home ALL.THE.TIME. life has slowed down tremendously and I am finding the that my dinner preparation has also started taking a slower pace.

Last week, I dusted off my forgotten friend, the Slow Cooker, and relished in the beauty of “set and forget”. Perhaps most enjoyable was to smell the ascension of the mouthwatering aroma that permeated throughout my house as the hours of the day dwindled on. A poignant reminder that good things are coming.. just hold on.. good things are coming…

I made burritos with our Slow Cooker Mexican Brisket!

Now I know that we are all working with ingredients we have on hand and limiting our runs the the grocery store right now. So are these picture perfect Beef Burritos.. umm no!

I would have liked to top with some Queso Fresco, guacamole, and cilantro. Perhaps maybe even a fancy slaw, as seen in this recipe for Chipotle Chicken Tacos with a Mango Lime Slaw, but I used what I had: lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese, and a bit of salsa and had to call it a day!

And yet.. they were SO DAMN DELICIOUS!
